Coli Outbreak Turns Deadly Using a Deadly Event in California

The rest of the sicknesses aren't linked to Harrison Farms and investigators continue to probe the source of the chopped romaine lettuce causing the illness.

Officials say California reported the death, but they did not provide other details.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 23 more cases were reported since Friday, bringing the total to 121. The government has also reported that at least 52 people have been hospitalized, 14 of which had kidney failure.

Massachusetts, along with Utah and Kentucky have been added to the list of states that have reported cases of the virus.

The FDA is continuing to investigate illnesses related to romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region.

"Most people recover within a week, but some illnesses can last longer and be more severe", the CDC said. The outbreak began on March 13, and the most recently confirmed case took place on April 21. If you find yourself sick, write down what you've eaten, contact your doctor and report your illness to your local health department. People who get sick from toxin-producing E. coli come down with symptoms about three to four days after swallowing the germ, with many suffering bloody diarrhea, severe stomach cramps and vomiting.

One farm in Yuma, Arizona has been identified so far as supplying the whole-head lettuce linked to a cluster of E. coli cases among prisoners in Nome, Alaska. The CDC advises anyone with these symptoms to seek medical attention as E. coli infection is typically diagnosed via a stool sample. That outbreak, which caused 24 illnesses across 15 states, was officially declared over in January. "This advice includes whole heads and hearts of romaine, chopped romaine, baby romaine, organic romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce", the federal agency said in a statement. It is safe to consume romaine lettuce that originates from other regions, however. Restaurants and retailers are also being advised to ask their suppliers about where their lettuce comes from.
